Finally got around to putting a decoder into my sons 'James' loco.
My first problem was all the wires on the loco were black ! Why Hornby WHY ?
Got the decoder wired up and went to test it plus give it a new code, which for 'James' my son said had to be 05.
It ran OK as 03 but when I tried to change it to 05 it would not accept code ?
It says you can just press 5 and it goes over to 05 but it just stayed on 5.
It did eventually accept loco code 5 but only after about 20 attempts. Has anyone else had similar problems ?
